Gold smuggling: Pinarayi Vijayan and family are involved, alleges Benny Behanan
Thrissur: UDF convener Benny Behanan told the media here that there are more links to the gold smuggling case and that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and family have connections with it.
“After being dismissed from the consulate, Swapna got the job in KPhone through PricewaterhouseCoopers company. The contract was signed neglecting the opinion of the chief secretary, finance secretary and Citizens Forum that it should be blacklisted. The staff of PricewaterhouseCoopers are linked with Exalogic Soultions, the company of chief minister's daughter,” Benny Behanan alleged.
The UAE consulate dismissed Swapna. The Chief Minister cannot claim that he was unaware of how the accused in gold smuggling case was appointed in the IT department. There is no point in the CM's statement that he did not know the appointment of this woman in his department when she is an accused in a case being investigated by the Crime Branch, the Congress leader added.
